The 2015 celebration of International Women’s Day has prompted Arriva London to talk to some of its female staff, and see how things have changed since their time with the company.
Transport for London (TfL) has announced that Arriva has been awarded the contract to operate route 312, which will become the first route in London to be operated entirely by electric buses.
To start the year in a positive way and finish off the celebrations for the Year of the Bus, Arriva London’s Heritage Fleet RMC 1464 ‘The Open Topper’ was invited to join the New Year’s Day celebration parade through the streets of London.
The new 2015 calendar is now available to download.
The initiative by Transport for London (TfL), Arriva London and UK bus manufacturer Optare saw two of the latest electric buses introduced to the capital’s fleet.
Here are the running schedules for the festive season.
